Suggestion General Enabling Shield Passive block vs melee attack

Users who are viewing this thread

Right now shields can block projectiles even if they are not in the block animation, makes sense.
However when it comes to melee attack shield cease to exist the moment you no longer hold the block, this is unrealistic, makes 1 handed units much weaker vs 2 handed units in melee and makes cavalry very vulnurable when they charge despite the fact that they had long kite shields in this period exactly for this reason.

Would it be possible to add passive blocking against melee attacks into the game or at least make it moddable in, right now we were not able to mod it in. We were only able to make shield holsters (shield on back) absorb all the damage and put them on hand / shoulder when they are not equipped in the off hand, however they take no damage in this form so proper passive block would be appreciated.
